General Information 


Catholic Theological Union was founded in 1967 as a creative 
response to the call for seminary reform sounded by Vatican Council 
II. Three religious orders sponsored the school: the Franciscans of 
Sacred Heart Province, the Servites of the Eastern U.S. Province, and 
the Passionists of Holy Cross Province. The school was granted cor- 
porate status by the State of Illinois in November, 1967. Classes 
began in the fall quarter of 1968, with a faculty of 24 and an 
enrollment of 108. In January, 1972, Catholic Theological Union was 
accredited by the American Association of Theological Schools. The 
North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools gran- 
ted accreditation in March, 1972. 

In the years that followed, other communities have designated 
Catholic Theological Union as an official theologate: the 
Augustinians (1968), the Norbertines (1968), the Society of the 
Precious Blood (1969), the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (1969), 
the Society of the Divine Word (1970), the Viatorians (1972), the 
Xaverian Missionaries (1973), the Comboni Missionaries (1976), the 


Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions (1976), the Ukrainian 
Catholic Church (1978), the Sacred Heart Fathers and Brothers 
(1979), the Assumption Province of the Franciscans (1980), 
Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (1980), and the St. Paul of 
the Cross Province of the Passionists (1981). 

Catholic Theological Union is a charter member of the Chicago 
Cluster of Theological Schools, an association of six Protestant and 
two Roman Catholic schools of theology located in Hyde Park and 
the western suburbs. 

Catholic Theological Union is unique among U.S. seminaries. It is 
not a coalition of independent schools. Rather, the participating or- 
ders have closed their individual seminaries and merged their re- 
sources into one school, with one administration and faculty. Control 
is vested in the Board of Trustees. The school has the advantage of 
unity of administration and breadth of tradition and support, and has 
been accepted by its peers in the world of theological education. 

Catholic Theological Union is now the largest Roman Catholic 
school of theology in the United States, serving twenty-three provin- 
ces and abbeys of religious men as an official theologate, and many 
other students, lay and religious, in the preparation for ministry. One 
out of every seven religious priesthood candidates in the United 
States is trained at Catholic Theological Union. 

There is a living sense of purpose which guides a school more ef- 
fectively than any written statement. From the very beginning it was 
understood that CTU would be a school for ministry. Theology would 
be directed to practice. The By-Laws concisely stated this objective: 
to train and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic priesthood so that 
they may be fully qualified to meet the requirements of such 

As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes is necessary. 
In 1980, Catholic Theological Union reviewed its goals and adopted a 
new Mission Statement: 

Catholic Theological Union at Chicago is a school of ministry in the Roman Catholic 
tradition, begun in 1968 by a number of religious communities of men who combined 
resources in order to educate more creatively for priesthood. Today that founding 
vision embraces preparation for many forms of public ministry in the Church from or- 
dained priesthood to lay ministries. CTU accepts qualified men and women who show 
vocational commitment and seek graduate ministerial education. 

The community life of the school reveals the influence of the religious institutes 
which founded and sponsor the school. Thus inclusion, mutuality and participation 
mark the ecclesial context of the entire educational program. Within this context 
students live, grow and experience formation in faith and ministry. It also provides the 
impetus for the school's strong emphasis on mission, justice and the cross-cultural 


dynamics of ministry in the modern world and in a global church. Membership in the 
Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools and cooperation with the Divinity School of 
the University of Chicago offer opportunities for ecumenical participation in the 
preparation for ministry and for academic research in theology. 

CTU possesses a rich variety of academic and pastoral resources. These enable it to 
educate capable ministers for the present and future Church. 

While the main focus of CTU is the priesthood candidate, CTU has 
adjusted its programs to the present needs of Church and society. 
Such adjustments include a strong commitment to women in 
ministry, and educational opportunities for religious brothers and 
laypersons in preparation for ministry. 


Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park on Chicago's 
south side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably integrated community, with 
a strong sense of identity. Within walking distance are shopping cen- 
ters, theatres, restaurants, churches, parks, the Lake Michigan 
beaches and the Museum of Science and Industry. Dbwntown 
Chicago is fifteen minutes away by car or rapid transit. More im- 
portantly, CTU is close to the Divinity School of the University of 
Chicago and to several schools of theology in the area: Chicago 
Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology, Mead- 
ville/Lombard Theological School, and McCormick Theological 

CTU occupies a nine-story building containing some 200 rooms. 
Three lower floors are occupied by administrative and faculty of- 
fices, the library, lounges and dining facilities. The upper six floors 
furnish residence for some faculty and students, with individual com- 
munity chapels and lounges. In addition to the classrooms in the CTU 
building, CTU utilizes classroom facilities in the education building 
of the Chicago Sinai Congregation, which is located at 5350 South 
Shore Drive, one block east of CTU. 


The education building of the Chicago Sinai Congregation is 
located at 5350 South Shore Drive, one block east of CTU. By special 
arrangement one floor of this building has been made available to 
CTU. In addition, a number of seminar rooms and a media center are 
located in the CTU building. 



The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 84,000 volumes, 
providing resources for study and research by students and faculty 
members. It currently receives over 480 periodicals. In addition to 
the general theological holdings, the library has special collections in 
mission studies, history of religions, and homiletics. 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools' libraries, one of the 
largest theological bibliographical resources in the Western 
hemisphere, consisting of more than 1,000,000 volumes in theology 
and allied fields, are available to students enrolled in CTU. The 
Cluster libraries are connected by a Telefac Copier network, which 
gives instant contact for inquiries concerning titles and other library 
holdings. A daily courier service circulates books and periodicals for 
inter-library loans. 

Membership in the Chicago Library System, the Illinois Library 
Computer System Organization, and the Illinois Regional Library 
System allows CTU patrons access to other library resources in the 
city of Chicago, and the state of Illinois. 


From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major cosmopolitan 
center, with its many neighborhoods representing a wide variety of 


racial and ethnic groups, as well as a broad spectrum of cultural and 
religious traditions. 

Recent years have also seen Chicago become the largest center of 
theological education in the world. Fourteen seminaries, with over 
three thousand students and three hundred faculty, make Chicago an 
unequalled resource for the study of theology and ministry. 

Within this network of theological education, Catholic Theological 
Union enjoys special relationships with the Chicago Cluster of 
Theological Schools and the University of Chicago. 


Catholic Theological Union is a charter member of the Chicago 
Cluster of Theological Schools, an ecumenical association of eight 
Protestant and Catholic seminaries formed in 1970 for the purpose of 
promoting quality education through a programmed sharing of 

Five of the schools are located in Hyde Park: Catholic Theological 
Union, Chicago Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), 
Lutheran School of Theology, Meadville/Lombard Theological 
School (Unitarian/Universalist), and McCormick Theological 
Seminary (United Prebyterian). Three schools are in the western 
suburbs: Bethany Theological Seminary (Church of the Brethren), 
Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, and DeAndreis Institute of 
Theology (Catholic). 

The Cluster brings together some 1500 students and a large and 
diverse faculty offering over 400 courses annually. The combined 
library resources make the Cluster the second largest theological 
library center in the Western hemisphere, with over 1,000,000 
volumes and 2970 currently received periodicals. The Cluster also 
provides three centers for specialized research and ministry: the Cen- 
ter for Theology and Ministry in Global Perspective, the Center for 
Advanced Study in Religion and Science, and the Institute on the 
Church in Urban-Industrial Society. 

The participating schools of the Cluster maintain educational 
autonomy and continue to offer their own degrees. Each school also 
preserves its confessional identity and theological traditions. CTU 
participates in the Cluster following the guidelines set down in the 
Ecumenical Directory of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian 
Unity and in the Program of Priestly Formation of the National Con- 
ference of Catholic Bishops. 

CTU students may enroll for courses in any Cluster school without 
additional tuition or registration charge upon approval of their 


academic advisor and the Dean. They enjoy library privileges in all 
the Cluster schools, and may make use of the special programs of 
concentration in specific ministerial areas provided jointly by the 
Cluster schools (personal transformation, social transformation, 
cross-cultural communication, celebration, preaching and interpre- 
tation). They may also enroll in the programs of cooperative in- 
struction offered between the various schools. 

The Cluster is the largest such theological resource in the Midwest 
and one of the finest in North America. Further information on the 
Cluster, as well as a complete listing of courses offered, can be 
found in the annual Announcements of the Chicago Cluster of 
Theological Schools. 


Catholic Theological Union is located near the campus of the 
University of Chicago, one of the great research institutions in the 
world. Its Divinity School is renowned for historical research and the 
preparation of teaching scholars. 

A special plan of biregistration permits CTU students to register for 
courses in the University during the same term at a substantial reduc- 
tion of tuition. 

By special arrangement, certain CTU M.Div. students may pursue 
a coordinated sequence of study whereby they may receive the 
M.Div. degree from CTU and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from the 
University of Chicago's Divinity School. Details on this arrangement 
are found on p. 31 of these announcements. 


The Jewish Chautauqua Society established a resident lecturership 
in Judaism at Catholic Theological Union in 1968, for the purpose of 
providing offerings in Jewish Studies in the curriculum. Hayim Goren 
Perelmuter, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Isaiah Israel and past 
President of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, has served as Chautauqua 
Professor of Jewish Studies at CTU under this endowment since its in- 

The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine Word 
established the Divine Word Scholar in Residence in 1976 to bring 
qualified persons from the Third World to lecture at CTU. These lec- 
turers offer courses for one or more courses during the academic 
year. Other participating communities at CTU have periodically en- 
dowed visiting lectureships to enrich the offerings in CTU's 



The Chicago Institute of Theology and Culture was founded at 
Catholic Theological Union in 1978. Its purpose is to promote 
dialogue between the local theologies developing in the Church 
around the world, as well as aid in the larger interreligious dialogue. 
It achieves these ends by providing a network of communication for 
similar study centers around the world, by developing methodologies 
for constructing theologies in the local contexts, and by providing a 
center for ongoing discussion and training in these areas. It supports 
these goals further by arranging conferences and publications, and 
by sponsoring lecturers and research fellows from time to time at 

The Chicago Institute of Theology and Culture is directed by 
Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S., and Joseph Spae, C.I. CM. 


The National Organization for the Continuing Education of Roman 
Catholic Clergy (NOCERCC) is an independent service organization 
serving continuing education directors and formation directors of 
dioceses and religious communities. Full membership is extended 
only to dioceses and religious provinces; affiliate members include 
agencies, universities, and other institutions which offer services for 
the on-going growth of priests. At present, 110 dioceses and 70 
religious communities are members. 

NOCERCC was founded in 1972, and is served by an elected 
President, 12 Board Members representing the 12 Episcopal Regions, 
and 2 religious. Rev. James B. Dunning is the current Executive 
Director, serving half-time. Services include: a bi-monthly newslet- 
ter, an annual convention, in-service training at regional meetings, 
task force reports on subjects touching continuing education and 
priestly growth, conventions of pastors held regionally which 
promote leadership skills, and training for directors and teams who 
minister to priests. NOCERCC seeks to support a holistic approach to 
continuing education, which includes not only theological renewal 
and growth but personal and spiritual growth and greater ef- 
fectiveness in pastoral skills. 

The national office of NOCERCC is located at CTU, and Father 
Dunning is a Lecturer in Ministry at CTU.

Tuition and fees do not cover the full educational cost per student 
at CTU. The balance of the full educational costs, approximately 
$1,000 per student, is made up by the participating communities of 
men who pay the full cost of their members attending CTU, by the 
eight corporate member religious communities, and by outside fund- 
ing sources. 


Since the theological education of the majority of students at CTU 
is financed in full from funds of the participating communities, 
resources for financial aid are quite limited. The school will attempt, 
however, to provide some aid to a limited number of students. Ap- 
plications for financial aid should be filed with the Dean of Students 
before April 15. Decisions on aid can be expected by the end of May. 

Student Life 

The Dean of Students is the official representative of the ad- 
ministration for matters of student life at Catholic Theological 


Union. The Dean of Students works closely with the Student 
Executive Committee and the Formation Council and serves as 
liaison person between these bodies and the administration. 


The basic organ of the student opinion and action at Catholic 
Theological Union is the Student Government. The Student Govern- 
ment coordinates several areas of student responsibility and partici- 
pation in CTU life. The Student Government places representatives 
on the CTU Senate, and on the principal school committees: Admis- 
sions, Budget, Library, Curriculum, Rank and Recruitment. The Stu- 
dent Government is directed by the Student Executive Committee, 
headed by a president and vice-president elected by the student 
body. The several participating communities and unaffiliated stu- 
dents also place representatives on the SEC. The SEC represents the 
students in matters dealing with the faculty and administration, as 
well as student concerns in the Cluster. The SEC works closely with 
the Dean of Students. 


The Formation Council is made up of the directors of spiritual for-) 
mation of all communities at Catholic Theological Union. It provides 
a forum through which the directors share insights and experiences 
regarding spiritual formation. Also, the Formation Council agrees 
upon common policies in matters which affect the religious well- 
being of the student body as a whole, and makes suitable recommen- 
dations to the administration. To foster the spiritual development of 
the students, the Formation Council arranges for speakers, confer- 
ences and workshops. Liaison with the faculty is effected by the at- 
tendance of members at faculty meetings. The Formation Council 
also places two representatives on the CTU Senate. 


The participating communities of CTU generally provide services 
in the area of counselling and spiritual direction for their own 
students. For students who are not members of participating commu- 
nities, referral for counselling and spiritual direction is available 
through the Office of the Dean of Students. 

In' matters of academic guidance, each student is assigned an 
academic advisor upon being accepted into the school. In the case 
of students from participating communities, they are ordinarily 
assigned an advisor from their own community. 


Each of the participating communities celebrate daily liturgies, to 
which all students are welcome. In addition, CTU sponsors regular 
liturgies for the entire school. 


Participating communities at CTU generally provide housing for 
their own students. For other students needing housing, the Dean of 
Students will help in searching for suitable accommodations. Re- 
quests for housing assistance should be made in writing to the Office 
of the Dean of Students as soon as the student has been admitted to 
the school, and no later than thirty days prior to the beginning of the 

Some of the participating comunities of men have their residence 
in the CTU building, and from time to time a limited number of 
rooms are available in a given quarter. Inquiries as to availability of 
these rooms can be directed to the Business Manager and should be 
received at least 60 days prior to the beginning of each quarter. 
Rates and housing schedules for the CTU building are available upon 
request of the Business Manager. 

There is a food service, cafeteria style, available to all CTU 
students and staff. Meals may be purchased on a quarterly contract 
or meal ticket plan. Rates and schedules for the food service are 
available upon request from the Business Manager. 

CTU housing and food service prices are subject to periodic review 
and change. 



Recreational facilities are available nearby as well as throughout 
the city. The natural beauty of Lake Michigan, a short walk away 
from school, provides a scenic setting for meditation, walking, 
jogging and bicycling. Beaches and parks for sunning, picnicking and 
general enjoyment are a few blocks away. Golfing is available in 
nearby Jackson Park along with tennis facilities, which are also 
available in Cornell Park two blocks away. Indoor facilities in the 
area include swimming, racquetball, tennis and fitness equipment. 
Winter sports include ice skating outside and use of St. Thomas the 
Apostle gym for intramural basketball and volleyball. 

General Regulations 


Catholic Theological Union, as a school for ministry in the Roman 
Catholic tradition, aims at providing quality education for persons in- 
terested in ministry. Consequently, all its programs are open to all 
serious and qualified students, male and female, who wish to prepare 
themselves for ministries in this tradition. 

Pre-Theological Study 

Pre-theological studies have been the object of extensive study 
and consultation in recent years. The Association of Theological 
Schools in its recent Statement on Preseminary Studies has outlined 
in broad, flexible guidelines the kinds of foundational understandings 
the entering student ought to have in areas such as human life, 
culture, religion, and skills of thought, communication, and 
language. Catholic Theological Union concurs with this statement 
and has adapted its admission requirements and recommendations to 
its spirit. 

General Admission Requirements 

The following items are necessary as part of application for 
general admission to CTU: 

— A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an approved college or 

— A completed CTU application form. The application form may be 


obtained from the Office of the Registrar. Applications from 
students of participating communities are due April 15. Applica- 
tions from all other students are due six weeks prior to the quarter 
in which students plan to enter CTU. Late applications will be ac- 
cepted, but no guarantee can be given of admission processing in 
time to begin the following quarter. In such cases, students may 
be admitted conditionally at the discretion of the Committee on 

— Payment of the matriculation fee to the Office of the Registrar. 

— Submission of official copies of all college transcripts to the Of- 
fice of the Registrar. 

— Three letters of recommendation. For applicants belonging to 
dioceses or religious congregations, one of these letters must be 
from an official representative of their diocese or congregation. 
Applicants from CTU participating communities do not need to 
submit letters of recommendation. 

CTU reserves the right to require personal interviews with an ad- 
missions officer and to require screening tests of applicants. 

Admission to CTU does not constitute admission to degree can- 
didacy. Specific requirements for candidacy in the various degree 
programs are listed under the descriptions of those programs 
elsewhere in this catalogue. 


Student Classification 

Students are admitted to degree candidacy after completion of ad- 
mission requirements to the respective degree program and after two 
quarters of study. 

Students not requesting admission to degree programs or the cer- 
tificate program are classified as special students. 

Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter are classified 
as full-time students. All others are part-time students. 


Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on the dates 
announced in the academic calendar. Late registration is allowed on 
the dates so designated in the calendar. Registration after these 
dates cannot be guaranteed, and must be accompanied by a late 
registration fee of $5.00. 


Changes in Registration 

Changes in registration are allowed through the first week of the 
quarter. Thereafter the course will appear on the transcript with a 
grade or designation of withdrawal. 

Class Schedule and Course Load 

CTU operates on the quarter system, with three eleven-week quar- 
ters per year. All courses are offered for three quarter credit hours, 
and meet one hundred fifty minutes per week for ten weeks, with the 
eleventh week for study and examinations. Classes are scheduled 
Monday through Thursday during the day, with some evening courses 
and weekend intensives also being offered. 

The normal course load is four courses (twelve credit hours) per 
quarter. Students may register for an additional course with the per- 
mission of their academic advisor and the Dean. 

Grading and Standards of Progress 

Grades are given at the end of each quarter and published by the 
Registrar. The student's academic advisor keeps a progressive 
checklist of regular advancement toward completion of hour and 
area requirements. 

CTU uses the letter grade system, and also the pass-fail system for 
some courses. Grades are given and computed according to the 
following schedule: 

A = Excellent four quality points 

B = Good three quality points 

C = Fair two quality points 

D = Poor one quality point 

F = Failure no quality points 

P = Pass 

WP = Withdrew passing 
WF = Withdrew failing 
I = Incomplete 
PI = Permanent Incomplete 

Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative quality point average in 
the M.Div. and M.T.S. programs, and a 3.0 cumulative quality point 
average in the M.A. program. Students falling below this cumulative 
average will be placed on probation for the following quarter. Stu- 
dents failing to show improvement are subject to dismissal unless 
there are extenuating circumstances. 

CTU reserves the right to dismiss students whose academic 


progress or whose adjustment to the school is unsatisfactory. Students 
dismissed for poor scholarship cannot be readmitted to the degree 


Students may withdraw from any course up to the end of the 
seventh week of the quarter if permission of their advisor is obtained. 
They must follow the procedures outlined by the Registrar's Office. 
The grade "WP" or "WF" will be entered on their transcript for cour- 
ses from which they have withdrawn. 


Instructors may allow students an extension of time to complete 
coursework up to the end of the fifth week of the next quarter. If 
work is not completed by that time, the instructor will award either 
an "F" or a "PI" for the course. In those instances, no credit will be 
given for the course. The course may be repeated, provided that the 
student registers and pays tuition according to the normal 
procedures of the school. 


No credit is given for a course in which a student receives an "F". 
If the course is required, it must be successfully completed before 

Transfer of Credit 

Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be transferred 
to CTU. Ordinarily, no more than nine hours may be transferred into 
M.A. and M.T.S. programs. No credits from courses graded below 
"C" can be transferred. These credits will be recognized only after 
the student has completed successfully one year of academic work 
at CTU. Requests for transfer of credit are to be addressed to the Of- 
fice of the Dean. 

Advanced Standing 

Students entering M.Div. and M.T.S. programs may petition to 
receive advanced standing for previous work done in foundational 
areas. If the petition is granted, hours in those foundational areas 
then become elective. Petitions for advanced standing are to be 
directed to the Office of the Dean after admission to CTU. 


Credit by Examination 

Credit by examination may be sought in many foundational areas 
and in select advanced areas in the M.Div. and M.T.S. programs. 
Procedures for seeking credit by examination are outlined in the 
M.T.S. and M.Div. Manuals. 

Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled at CTU enjoy the possibility of enrolling in a 
number of other Chicago theological schools. They may enroll (at no 
additional tuition charge) at any of the other seven member schools 
of the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools (Bethany Theological 
Seminary, Chicago Theological Seminary, DeAndreis Institute of 
Theology, Lutheran School of Theology, McCormick Theological 
Seminary, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, and Northern 
Baptist Theological Seminary). 

CTU students may also enroll at no additional tuition charge in the 
five schools of the Chicago Theological Institute (Garrett-Evangelical 
Theological Seminary, North Park Theological Seminary, Seabury- 
Western Theological Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, and 
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School), and in the Spertus College of 

CTU enjoys a relationship whereby CTU students may also enroll 
in courses at the University of Chicago with significant reduction in 
tuition. Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned above may be 
applied toward CTU degree requirements. Up to one-third of a 
student's work may be done in these other schools, and by special 
arrangement this may be increased to one-half. 

Academic Programs 

The Catholic Theological Union Curriculum 

Catholic Theological Union's stated purpose is to be a school for 
ministry, preparing persons to minister in the Roman Catholic 
tradition. First and foremost this means graduate theological 
education for ordained ministry, but it also includes preparation for 
the variety of ministries now already part of, and still emerging 
within the Roman Catholic Church. 


As a school for ministry, CTU's curricular model is one of com- 
petency-based education, committed to academic and professional 
excellence. For CTU, competency-based education means: 

— a student-centered (rather than content-centered) 
educational process aiming at the integration of the 
student's knowledge and experience; 

— the development within the student of a grasp of the 
Catholic religious heritage; 

— an adequate understanding of a variety of frameworks and 
methodologies for interpreting that heritage; 

— an increasing ability to communicate that heritage ef- 
fectively in varying ministerial contexts. 

This educational process is broadened by the larger awareness of 
the cultural pluralism of the contemporary world, provided by CTU's 
international student body and program of World Mission. It takes 
place within the ecumenical context of the Chicago Cluster of 
Theological Schools. The process is strengthened by CTU's 
association with the neighboring University of Chicago, with its 
tradition of critical inquiry and broad humanistic study. 

More specific curricular objectives are given with each of the 
degree programs. 



Aim of the Program 

CTU's Master of Divinity degree is a graduate professional 
program. The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has achieved a 
level of competency and proficiency in selected areas and skills to 
begin the work of ordained ministry in the Roman Catholic Church. 

The M.Div. program combines theological education, guided 
ministerial experience, and structures for integrative reflection. As 
the first professional degree for candidates for ordained ministry, its 
aim is generalist in nature, while allowing for some specialization 
within its broad framework. It is concerned not only with the ap- 
propriation of the Catholic religious heritage, but also its effective 
communication. It seeks to prepare candidates for leadership in a 
pluralist world in a variety of ministerial contexts. 

The M.Div. program seeks to implement fakhfully the broad and 
flexible guidelines of the 1981 Program of Priestly Formation of the 
National Conference of Catholic Bishops. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements outlined above, 
the following requirements are normally prerequisite for admission 
to the M.Div. program: 

— fifteen semester hours of philosophy. These should provide 
adequate exposure to the major historical periods of 
philosophical thought. Other recommended areas are 
philosophical anthropology, epistemology, and metaphysics. 

— three semester hours in sociology. 

— six semester hours in psychology. Recommended are ex- 
perimental psychology and personality theory. 

Program Requirements 

The M.Div. consists of 135 quarter credit hours and the M.Div. 
Professional Resume. These can ordinarily be completed in eleven 
quarters of work, and must be completed within seven years. M.Div. 
candidates must maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade average. Further 
regulations may be found in the M.Div. Manual. 

Course Requirements 

The program is divided into foundational and advanced areas. In 
most instances, the requirements are area requirements rather than 


specific course requirements. They are distributed in the following

The M.Div. Professional Resume 

The M.Div. Professional Resume is an important part of the com- 
petency-based model of preparation for ministry. It is a progressively 
completed dossier of materials attesting to the ministerial skills and 
competencies which the student has attained. Its cumulative charac- 
ter seeks to aid the student in the personal integration of knowledge 
and skills, as well as the effective communication of what has been 
experienced and learned. Completion of the Professional Resume 
marks the completion of the M.Div. program. 

Further information and regulations for the M.Div. Professional 
Resume are contained in the M.Div. Manual. The materials in the 
Resume include: 

— a Statement on the Christian Heritage 

— a Statement on Ministry 

— Certification in three areas of pastoral competency: 


Pastoral Counseling 


— Evaluations from field supervisors 

— Evaluations from people served in ministry 

— Pastoral case history from a situation in which the student 

has served 

— Transcript of grades and courses completed 

— Other materials the student may wish to include 

Language Requirement 

There is no langugage requirement as such for the M.Div. degree. 
However, language competency may be required for admission to 
some courses. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.Div. program is administered by Rev. John Szura, O.S.A., 
M.Div. Director, to whom inquiries should be addressed. Regulations 
and procedures regarding the M.Div. degree are contained in the 
M.Div. Manual. 

Aim of the Program 

The purpose of the CTU program for the Master of Arts in 
Theology is multidimensional. The program is designed, within the 
resources of CTU and the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools, to 
provide the theological background for those who wish: to prepare 
for entrance into a doctoral program in theology; to teach religion at 
a secondary or college level; to develop a basic competence in the 
area of theological studies though their principal specialization lies 

The M.A. program is marked by flexibility, allowing for a wide 
variety of individually tailored programs. When they apply for ad- 
mission to the program, normally by the middle of the quarter 
preceding admission, the candidates choose the objective(s) which 
best meet their needs. Before registering for M.A. course work they 
meet with their M.A. boards to work out the details of a program 
designed to help achieve the objective(s) chosen. The M.A. board 
will act as an on-going supervisory and consultative group which will 
help students evaluate their progress and decide on any 
modifications which might be advisable. 

The M.A. in theology is not routinely granted en route to the 
M.Div. It is also open to those who wish to gain theological 
background for work other than the priestly ministry. 

Once the prerequisites have been met, the M.A. program will 


usually take two years (one year of course work plus the time needed 
for the thesis and the comprehensive examinations). It must be com- 
pleted within seven years. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, candidates for 
the M A. in theology must have completed 18 semester hours or 27 
quarter hours of university or seminary level theology. This latter 
requirement can be fulfilled by study in foundational areas at CTU or 
by an undergraduate major in theology or religious studies from an 
accredited college or university, provided that the Dean, in con- 
sultation with the M.A. Director and appropriate faculty members, 
judges this to be equivalent. To enter advanced level courses in the 
Department of Biblical Literature and Languages the M.A. can- 
didates must have taken B 300 and 305 or their equivalent; to enter 
advanced level courses in the Department of Historical and Doc- 
trinal Studies they must have completed at least twelve quarter 
hours of historical and doctrinal studies, including six quarter hours 
of church history survey. Other prerequisites for specific areas of 
specialization may be required by the Dean, in consultation with the 
M.A. Director and appropriate faculty members. 

Program Requirements 

The M.A. program requirements consist of courses, comprehensive 
examinations, and thesis. 

Course Requirements 

Thirty-six quarter hours (12 courses) of course work are required. 
The candidate must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. There will be 
automatic dismissal from the program for any grade below a "C" or 
for more than two "C's". The course work shall be divided as 

1. Eight advanced level courses in the student's area of 
specialization (e.g., scripture, systematic theology, ethics, 
etc.) of which two courses are to be advanced seminars 
24 hours 

2. Two advanced level courses in each of two other theolo- 
gical disciplines 12 hours 

Up to one-third of the courses may be taken in other schools of 
the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools. By special arrangement 
with the M.A. board, this may be increased to one-half. 


Comprehensive Examinations 

Part of the requirements for the M A. in theology is a two-part 
comprehensive examination in which the candidates are to demon- 
strate their grasp of theological methodologies and content of the 
disciplines included within the scope of their program. The content 
and approach for which the student will be responsible in the com- 
prehensives is determined by students and their board of examiners 
within the general prescriptions of the M A. program. In case of 
failure, the comprehensive examinations may be retaken once only, 
within six weeks of the first examination. 


As the final requirement for the M.A. in theology, candidates must 
demonstrate the ability to do competent work in their field by 
writing a thesis characterized by research and independent thought. 
The thesis shall be seventy-five to one hundred pages in length and 
conform to one of the accepted manuals of style. The thesis is 
equivalent to nine quarter hours of course work. 

Language Requirement 

A reading knowledge of one modern foreign language is required 
for all candidates for the M.A. degree. The choice will be limited or- 
dinarily to French or German. In addition, those specializing in 
systematic theology will be required normally to demonstrate a 
reading knowledge of Latin, and those specializing in scripture will 
be required to demonstrate a reading knowledge of Greek and 
Hebrew, depending upon the scope of their program. Language com- 
petence shall be demonstrated generally by the end of the first quar- 
ter of the first year of the M.A. program. 

Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's cumulative 
grade, based on course work (one-half), comprehensive examination 
(one-quarter), and thesis (one-quarter). The M.A. board will then 
make an appropriate recommendation to the Dean and Faculty for 
the conferring of the degree of Master of Arts in Theology. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.A. program is administered by Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, 
O.S.M., M.A. Director. Inquiries concerning the program should be 
directed to his office. Further regulations for the M.A. program are 
contained in the M.A. Manual. 



Aim of the Program 

The Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) aims to provide the 
students with a general theological understanding as a context within 
which they will also develop selected pastoral skills and com- 
petencies. Building upon previous ministerial experience, the M.T.S. 
provides (1) education in the foundational areas of theological 
disciplines; (2) a focus for developing selected pastoral skills; (3) an 
integration of these skills within the framework of a general 
theological understanding. 

The M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had some ministerial 
experience and who wish to prepare for new ministries or to enhance 
their effectiveness in their current ministry. Concretely, the M.T.S. is 
envisioned for sisters, brothers, deacons and lay persons. 

While the M.T.S. draws upon the same resources as do the M.A. 
and M.Div. degrees, and shares aspects of their objectives and 
design, it is nonetheless distinct in it focus and relationship to these 

As a degree which provides not only general theological un- 
derstandings but also specific ministerial skills and competencies, 
the M.T.S. is basically different in orientation from the research M.A. 
degree, and so cannot be pursued concurrently with the M.A. degree. 

The M.T.S. represents a more limited range of pastoral skills for 
ministry than does the generalist M.Div. degree. For that reason, it 
does not qualify the candidate for ordination to priesthood in the 
Roman Catholic Church. Work done in the M.T.S. program, however, 
can be applied toward the M.Div. degree, although the two programs 
cannot be pursued concurrently. 

CTU's one year Certificate in Pastoral Studies may be applied 
toward work [n the M.T.S. program. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admissions requirements, at least three 
years of ministerial experience involving the communication of 
religious values to others are also required. Some background in 
philosophy, psychology, sociology and religious studies is recom- 
mended; the adequacy of this background will be determined ac- 
cording to the student's specific program. 

Program Requirements 

The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 quarter credit 


hours) are required for the M.T.S. degree. Equivalency may be gran- 
ted for previous theological study, to be applied to the foundational 
areas of the M.T.S. Decisions on equivalency are based upon tran- 
script evaluation. Candidates must maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade 
average. The program must be finished within seven years. 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foundational, 
theological/pastoral, and integrative areas. 

Foundational Areas: 21 hours 

The foundational areas are meant to provide some grounding 
in the major theological disciplines. They consist of twenty-one 
hours. Equivalency may be granted for this work if similar work 
has been done on an advanced level (i.e., upper level college or 
at another theological school). Work in the foundational areas 
must be completed during the first year of residency. The foun- 
dational areas include: 

Theological /Pastoral Areas: 42 hours 

The theological/pastoral areas provide work in selected areas 
of pastoral skills within the context of further theological un- 
derstanding. Forty-two hours are required in this area, to be 
distributed in the following manner: 

Systematic Theology (God, Christ, 

Church, Eucharist, Eschatology) 6 hours 

Scripture 6 hours 

Area of Concentration 18 hours 

Electives 12 hours 

Integrative Areas: 9 hours 

Nine hours are required in the integrative area. Three of these 
hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, ordinarily 
through the M.T.S. Colloquium. These hours are meant to aid the 
candidates in reflecting upon their previous ministerial experience. 

Three hours are to be done in the second year, to serve as a 
focus for a fuller integration of pastoral skills, theological reflection

and ministerial experience. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. project, 
which is oriented to the candidate's projected area of pastoral 
ministry and is completed under the supervision of faculty in 
the appropriate area. The project may be done in conjunction 
with the second integrating course. 

Language Requirement 

There are no language requirements as such for the M.T.S., 
although language competencies may be required for entry into cer- 
tain courses. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The /vi-T.S. program is directed and administered by the Dean. Since 
the M.T.S. program allows for a great deal of individualization, pro- 
grams for M.T.S. students will be developed in consultation with the 
student and appropriate faculty in the projected areas of pastoral 
skill. Further regulations for the M.T.S. program are found in the 
M.T.S. Manual. 


By a special arrangement with the University of Chicago, select 
CTU M.Div. students may pursue a coordinated sequence of 
programs leading to the CTU M.Div. degree and the Ph.D. degree at 
the University of Chicago Divinity School. 

Upon receiving written approval of the Dean of CTU, the student 
may enter this sequence. While pursuing the regular course of study 
in the M.Div. program, the student prepares for the six Certifying 
Examinations which constitute the preliminary phase of doctoral 
study at the University. The Certifying Examinations cover the 
following areas: 

I. Religious Traditions in Western Culture 

A. Sacred Scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, Islam 

B. Western Religious Traditions to 1500 

C. Religion in the West, 1500-1900 

II. Religion in the Modern World 

A. Religion and Modern Thought 

B. Religious Communities 

C. The Study of Religion 

Application for the Ph.D. program includes completing at least two 
quarters of bi-registration at the University, enrolling in at least two 


400-level courses at the University of Chicago Divinity School; suc- 
cessful completion of the six Certifying Examinations; successful 
completion of a French or German foreign language examination, ad- 
ministered either by the University of Chicago or the Educational 
Testing Service. 

CTU M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program when they 
have completed the requirements above and have completed two 
years of the M.Div. program. Application to the Ph.D. program does 
not constitute admission. Applications from this sequence will be 
considered along with other applications to the Ph.D. programs in 
the Divinity School. If accepted, the student matriculates into the 
Ph.D. program within one year, and takes at least two courses in that 
program thereafter until admitted to Ph.D. candidacy. If rejected, 
the student may apply for a terminal M.A. in the University, if the 
regular curricular and financial obligations are met. 

Students must complete the M.Div. before the Ph.D. can be 
awarded. When the M.Div. degree has been awarded, the student 
may petition that the Ph.D. be awarded with more than nine but 
fewer than the eighteen courses normally required beyond the 
master's level. The student may also petition to have a CTU faculty 
member serve as an additional examiner in the oral portion of the 
Qualifying Examinations, and also to serve as a member of the 
dissertation reading committee. 

Students may apply credit received in University courses to the 
M.Div. degree in the usual arrangement with neighboring institutions. 
Successful completion of the Certifying Examinations may be sub- 
stituted for the Statement on the Christian Heritage in the M.Div. 
Resume. Choice of elective courses and the field of doctoral study 
may make some adjustment in M.Div. course distribution 
requirements plausible. In such cases, the student may petition the 
M.Div. Director for such adjustments. These can be made by the 
M.Div. Director after consultation with the Dean and the appropriate 

Further details on this sequence may be obtained from the Dean's 
Office. More information on Ph.D. programs at the University of 
Chicago Divinity School may be found in the current issue of its An- 


The Program of Studies in World Mission at CTU has been 
developed to make it possible for students to have a specific mission 


focus in any of the various degree programs offered by the school, 
namely, M.Div., M.A., M.T.S., as well as to meet the challenge to all 
theological education of cultural pluralism and global solidarity. 

The world mission of the church has entered a new era. The 
growing thrust toward unity on the economic, political, and religious 
planes, the deeper realization of cultural and religious pluralism 
within that unity, and the greater involvement in the struggle for 
human dignity have deeply affected the direction of the Church's 
mission in the world: to be truly servant to humanity, to be truly in- 
digenous and catholic, to be truly ecumenical, to be truly a sign and 
instrument of reconciliation and peace. 

It is with this awareness that the Program of Studies in World 
Mission has been developed at CTU. Biblical, historical, systematic, 
and ethical courses with mission as their focus have been organized. 
Pastoral placements most suitable for reflection on the Church's 
mission have been created. The goal is to prepare an apostle who is a 
person of dialogue — who is able to live a precarious existence be- 
tween different cultural worlds; who seeks not only to give but to 
receive, not only to admonish but to assist; who calls to conversion, 
but is also ready to undergo conversion; who, in inviting all peoples 
to the community of those who profess Jesus as the Christ, wants to 
enable other churches and other religions to develop according to 
their best tendencies, and so forth. 

The Program of Studies in World Mission is supervised, continually 
revised, and developed by the interdepartmental Committee on 
World Mission. In this, they are aided by periodic meetings of a 
Mission Advisory Council, which represents the interests of the 
school's various constituencies. 

All of CTU's degree programs are available with mission 
specialization. The requirements for each is as follows: 

Master of Divinity in Theology with Mission Specialization 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.Div. degree 
above, with the following additions: 

— forty-five hours (fifteen courses) in the M.Div. program must 
be taken with Mission Specialization. These must include 
CCTS 1-560: Cross-Cultural Communication, or its equivalent. 

— An overseas training program approved by CTU may be sub- 
stituted for the Advanced Ministry Practicum. For students 
taking this Practicum, it is to be done with cross-cultural 


Master of Arts in Theology with Mission Specialization 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M A. above. 
The eight advanced level courses taken as specialization are in 
the area of Mission Specialization. 

Master of Theological Studies with Mission Specialization 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.T.S. above. 
The area of pastoral competency must be in Mission 

The courses offered by CTU with Mission Specialization are listed 
under the Program of World Mission in the section on Course Of- 
ferings below. 

The Program of Studies in World Mission is carried out in cooper- 
ation with the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools which guaran- 
tees a broad theological and ecumenical environment. Included in 
this dimension is the participation in planning and sponsoring of 
various workshops and meetings on current mission and international 
problems as well as the annual one-week World Mission Institute. 

The Program is open to — and has been enriched by — mission- 
aries on leave who participate in the various courses according to 
their individual interests and needs, as part of their continuing 



Word and Worship is a specialization which can be pursued 
within the framework of the CTU Master of Divinity (M.Div.), Master 
of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) and Certificate in Pastoral Studies 

Word and Worship has been designed for students oriented to 
pastoral ministry who wish to specialize in preaching and liturgy. 
Continuing liturgical renewal has given rise to an increasing need for 
a unique model of education for directors of parish liturgy, 
preachers, resource persons, members of liturgical commissions and 
others specializing in preaching and liturgical ministry. 

The CTU Word and Worship model stresses the pastoral dimension 
of word and worship as a primary goal. Among its specific goals are 
the following: 1) to provide the student with an integrated approach 
to word and worship; 2) to combine word and worship studies more 
closely with other theological disciplines 3) to situate the theological 
study of word and worship in a broader context of pastoral care; 4) to 
provide advanced word-worship competency for students through an 
integrated, effective use of parish/field-based experience and CTU 
practica; and 5) to prepare the student for the educational and ad- 
ministrative dimensions of this ministry, especially through pastoral 

This specialization is individualized for each student. Students 
work with a word-worship advisor to plan the specific content of the 
specialization in keeping with their background and future 
ministerial placement. The program options and the word-worship 
requirements within each are as follows: 

Master of Divinity with Word and Worship Specialization 

General requirements are the same as those listed above for the 
M.Div. program. These include nine quarter credit hours in liturgy 
and sacraments and first competencies in preaching, worship and 
sacramental law. 

In addition, the following specific word and worship requirements 
are to be met within the program: 

-- M 486-487-488 with word and worship specialization; 

-- advanced competency in word and worship (ordinarily the 

equivalent of nine quarter credit hours of work); 
— two supporting courses in which the student's course work 

is related to word and worship. 


Master of Theological Studies 

Requirements are the same as those listed above for the M.T.S. 
program. The eighteen hours in the area of concentration must be in 
the area of word and worship. 

Certificate in Pastoral Studies 

A more limited word and worship specialization can be developed 
within this program in consultation with the advisor, providing 
students can demonstrate adequate previous theological study for 
undertaking such a specialization. 

In addition to the CTU staff and offerings in the area of word and 
worship, students working in this specialization have access to a 
wide variety of professors and course offerings in a number of 
theological schools in the Chicago area. The Chicago area also 
provides many related resources, as well as field placements in 
which to develop skills in word and worship. 

Further details can be obtained from the Office of the Dean. 


Aim of the Program 

The aim of the Certificate in Pastoral Studies is to provide an op- 
portunity to develop a program of study either to enhance one's ef- 
fectiveness in one's current ministry or to prepare for another 
ministry. It is especially designed as a program for continuing 

Admission Requirements 

There are no special requirements beyond the general admission 
requirements. Preference is given to persons with experience in 
ministry, however. 

Program Requirements 

The Certificate in Pastoral Studies consists of thirty-six hours 
(twelve courses), the equivalent of one year's work at CTU. Selection 
of courses in the Certificate is made on the basis of the candidate's 
interest and need. Candidates may avail themselves of the courses 
offered at CTU including CTU's field programs and courses in the 
Chicago Cluster. There is no language requirement. 



The Certificate in Pastoral Studies is administered by the Office of 
the Dean, to which inquiries may be directed. The Dean provides the 
guidance in the selection of courses for Certificate candidates. 


CTU wishes to make its resources available for persons interested 
in pursuing continuing education. Qualified persons may enroll for 
one or more quarters and select courses according to their interest 
and need. Admission requirements are those for general admission. 
Special students in continuing education may be advised in the 
selection of courses either by the Dean, an academic advisor in one 
of the participating communities, or a faculty person in the area of 


CTU offers a number of opportunities for study abroad: 
— Israel Study Program: CTU offers a three month program of 
bible study and travel in Israel in the Fall term. CTU faculty 
accompany students to Israel and lead the program, with 
other lecturers and guides drawn from resources in Israel. 

— Louvain Study Program: CTU students may spend one or two 
semesters in the English-speaking section of the Theological 
Faculty of the University of Louvain. 

— Franciscan Spirituality Program: A program of travel and 
study is conducted in summer in Italy, consisting of on-site 
study of Franciscan spirituality and its sources. 

Details on these programs may be obtained from the Office of 


Courses of Study 

Courses offered during the academic years 1981-83 are listed 
below. Three departments make up the school of theology of the 
Catholic Theological Union: the Department of Biblical Literature 
and Languages (BLL), the Department of Historical and Doctrinal 
Studies (HDS), and the Department of Christian Mission and Ministry 
(CMM). The courses are divided into three series: "300" series (foun- 
dational courses), "400" series (advanced courses representing 
generally the core courses for the various programs), and "500"

E 370: Christian Ethics: Invitation and Response 

The intention of the course is to develop and utilize a systematic framework for 
locating, understanding and evaluating moral problems and solutions. We will consider 
God's invitation through Christ to each person as well as our response to that call. This

derstanding and evaluating phenomena of human experience and human action in 
relationship to Christian norms and standards. By understanding and developing the at- 
titudes, dispositions and motives underlying human behavior, we hope to arrive at a 
positive response to God's call.

E 488: Marxist Humanism and Christian Faith 

The course will study the problem of the acculturation of the Christian faith within the 
marxist culture and political context. The point of departure will be the study of 
possible relations between the content of Christian hope and its justification with the 
content of marxist hope and its justification. To do this the course will try to answer 
two questions: a) what are the challenges that marxist humanism brings to a Christian 
concept and praxis about humanity: b) what challenges can a renewed Christian 
theology and praxis bring to marxist humanism? The course will study key concepts and 
fundamental socio-political structures of marxism, approaching them genetically and 
comparatively with correspondent concepts and structures in which Christian theology 
and praxis has been expressed in western Christianity, in view of disclosing their even- 
tual capacity to become cultural expression of Christian faith and praxis.

I 560: Cross-Cultural Communication (CCTS] 

The course has a double major thrust which will serve the needs and goals of a wide 
variety of students. On the one hand, it will give high priority to those students who 
desire to work or study in another cultural environment and will help them acquire 
beginning levels of competence for effective communication in cultures and sub- 
cultures other than their own. At the same time, the concentration will provide a wider 
range of students the opportunity to experience in a unique way the cultural assump- 
tions and limits of their theological thinking, and to lay the foundation for a broader 
international, interracial and ecumenical understanding, concern and commitment 
both in their theological education as well as in their futher ministry.

pletion of this paper in an organized manner, so as to fulfill a major requirement for 
the professional resume. It is an interdisciplinary enterprise both by reason of the scope 
of the heritage paper to be written and by reason of the composition of faculty par-
